Julien Dupuy plays as a Scrum-half.
Julien Dupuy played for Biarritz and Toulouse in the French Top 14 for 7 seasons before joining Leicester Tigers in 2008. It was confirmed in April 2009 that he would remain at Leicester for the 2009-10 Guinness Premiership season, but in June 2009, Leicester coach Richard Cockerill resigned himself to losing Dupuy to Stade Français. He was only halfway through a two-year deal but has reportedly been unsettled at Leicester because his French girlfriend was homesick. After the end of the season, he left Leicester for Stade Français, where his 2009-10 Top 14 season was ended early by a 24-week ban for contact with the eye or eye area of Stephen Ferris during Stade's loss to Ulster in the 2009-10 Heineken Cup. The ban was reduced to 23 weeks on appeal.
